We aim to do so through outreach and educational initiatives for youth and adults, with an emphasis on promoting healthy relationships and violence prevention. Additionally, FCR staff train other providers and community members about recognizing and responding to the needs of survivors, promoting healthy relationships in youth, and the impact of secondary trauma on providers and first responders.
